  1. Update: Final Price drop to £475. I've has this for a few years but, as it doesn't get played much now, I'm reluctantly letting it go. Never been gigged. It's got some fairly new Ernie Ball roundwounds on it, and comes in a plush lined soft case. Plays beautifully, and as you might expect from these basses, the tone can be thunderous! It's in very good overall condition with a couple of minor dings below the controls, which I've shown in one of the photos. My bathroom scales indicate a weight of around 10 pounds. You're welcome to come round and try it if you're in the area (near M1 Junction 29 in Derbyshire). I'd prefer collection or meet up, but would ship at buyer's expense (estimate at £35 including insurance).
  2. Final pre-EBay price drop - NOW SOLD Little-played Squier Jaguar for sale on behalf of our lead guitarist. who tried but failed to get to grips with playing the bass. (Fewer strings but more imagination needed, I'd guess 😉) Anyhoo, this short scale little thing is fairly light and pretty much unmarked. The only blemish I can see is on the back near the rear strap button, but it's very small and doesn't even show up on the photos. I've set it up myself, with a nice low action just short of fret buzz, and it plays really well. Comes with Fender gig bag. UK courier cost estimated at £20. Visitors welcome to inspect and play. We're near Junction 29 of the M1.
  3. Just bought a fretless bass from Ben. Arrived today as agreed, well packaged and in tip top condition. Good negotiated deal, great communication and a thoroughly nice guy to deal with. Trade with confidence!
  4. Now SOLD. Price drop to £180 before I advertise this on eBay. I bought this MIC Thunderbird new about eight years ago. It's been gigged once, but has remained indoors ever since and played only rarely. It's in pretty good condition as a result, the only issue being a nick on the fretboard (which I've tried to show in one of the pictures) which doesn't affect playability (to this day I've no idea how it got there). The neck is straight, the controls fine and as you'd expect the tone is massive. I'd prefer pick up, but would be happy to arrange courier delivery at an approximate cost of £25. If you're interested and would like to try before you buy, you're welcome to come along and have a play.
  5. I've just upgraded the stock pickups in my MIM P-bass, so they are now surplus to requirements. In full working order. First £25 plus postage, or collect from North Derbyshire.
  6. Price Drop - £60 collected - I need the room!! This old warrior has served me well over the years, and has spent the last few in a rehearsal room. It was serviced last year by a professional electronics technician and works just fine. However, space is needed now so it's got to go. As many will know, these are bombproof combos but very heavy so collection is a must. Fortunately, we're just off Junction 29 of the M1 so access is easy. Any questions please let me know.
  7. Really nice guy and a pleasure to do business with. Cheers, Tom.
  8. Hi folks, I bought this from new a couple of years ago to play Cream, Free etc tunes - you know how it is. However, I subsequently found that short scale isn't really for me, being a largish sort of chap, so it has lain unused and ungigged in my rack since then. So, time to move it on. You know the specs, so I'll not reproduce them here. It's in excellent nick, with no dings or scratches that I can see. Comes with bog standard gig bag. £100 O.N.O. Pick up from North Derbyshire, or will post for £15. Cheers, David. Now sold, thanks all.
  9. Yes, now sold pending the usual. Thanks for the interest.
  10. I think they weigh in at around 35KG, peanutsman. You need your spinach!
  11. Partly because I can now play direct through the PA, but mostly because of my advancing years and growing inability to lug heavy gear around, I am putting this beast up for sale (the cab, that is, not me). £60 collected. Its the 4 ohm 350W programme and 174W RMS version, and so can get seriously loud. I bought it from a local guy a few years ago, who had had it from new. It bears the usual scuffs and marks, but is in full working order. Will demo if required. I'm just off Junction 29 of the M1 in Derbyshire, easy to get to when you're in the vicinity. Cheers, David. Now sold.
  12. Bought a markbass cab from Jim yesterday. Really pleased with it. Jim is a great guy and couldn't do enough to demo the cab for me, as well as making me & my mate very welcome. All the best to you and the family Jim, including the dogs ! David.
